Saturday, October 28, 11am

Five years ago, Superstorm Sandy took lives, destroyed homes, and flooded subways. Like in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the people hit hardest by Sandy were the poor, people of color, immigrants, and our already most vulnerable communities.

Day of Action: #DumpDeVos | Government Sachs

Event Date:

#ReclaimOurSchools #DumpDeVos #ResistTrump

Download a flyer

Donald Trump’s presidency will be a giveaway to oligarchs and one-percenters, if we don’t resist. His appointees from Goldman Sachs extracted fortunes from workers and our communities. His would-be secretary of education, billionaire Betsy DeVos, wants to privatize and sell our schools to corporations.

Starting January 17, community activists are camping out in front of Goldman Sachs to demonstrate that the people will resist this corporate takeover of our government. We’re mobilizing to support them and to tell our representatives in Albany and Washington that students, families and educators demand:

  • Resistance to the DeVos appointment & Trump’s education agenda
  • State and federal taxes to make the rich pay their share
  • More public funding for schools

Part of a national day of action organized by the Alliance to Reclaim our Schools.

Fight For $15 Presidential Debate Protest

Event Date: 
Mon, 09/26/2016 - 18:00 to 19:30

The first presidential debate is September 26 at Hofstra University. The Fight for $15 is mobilizing for a massive rally outside the debate to tell the candidates that low-wage and exploited workers won’t be ignored any longer. Sixty-four million working people in this country make less than $15 an hour. Forty percent of American workers now have jobs subject to some form of contingency. Exploited workers in the service industry and academia and everywhere in between make a powerful voting bloc. September 26 is a chance for them to say to the next president: If you want our vote, come get it.

Join LIU Faculty to Protest the Lockout

Event Date: 
Wed, 09/07/2016 - 08:00

Unionized faculty at the Brooklyn campus of Long Island University are locked out and picketing this week when they would rather be teaching. The Long Island University Faculty Federation has been bargaining in good faith with the administration at LIU since the spring. But last Friday they were informed that their health insurance will be cut off and they will no longer be paid for their work. LIU plans to redeploy administrators and has hired scabs to teach students when classes begin this week. PSC members are joining them on this picket line this Wed., Sept. 7 between 8 AM -1 PM at the corner of Dekalb and Flatbush Avenues. The PSC has issued a statement in support. Click here for a fact sheet about the lockout, here for a flier and here to RSVP via the Facebook event created by the PSC chapter at the Graduate Center. You can also sign an online petition hosted by the AFT. It’s time for LIU to treat its employees with the dignity and respect they deserve by bargaining a fair contract now and ending this lockout.

March with the PSC in the NYC Labor Day Parade

Every New Yorker has the right to a quality public higher education. Tell us you want to join other PSC members and march for that right at the NYC Labor Day Parade, Saturday, September 10.

“CUNY is for the People!” read the signs carried by our community allies during the PSC’s hard-fought contract campaign. Together with the NY Central Labor Council and the emergent CUNY Rising Alliance, we reversed a planned half-billion-dollar reduction in state funding for CUNY and we defeated a proposed tuition hike. We built the power necessary for the PSC to negotiate a contract with back pay and improvements to working and learning conditions at CUNY.

The Labor Day Parade is a chance to celebrate the progress we’ve made collectively and to mobilize for the next campaigns—at the voting booth and in the streets. The PSC is committed to quality public higher education as a right for all New Yorkers and to ensuring that CUNY offers that quality education. PSC carries that banner every day, not just when our contract expires.

Be part of a big PSC turnout, a show of political force saying “Invest in CUNY. Invest in New York."

The PSC contingent will gather on East 45th Street between 5th and Vanderbilt Avenues starting at 9 AM. We will carry signs and handout flyers throughout the march. PSC marchers will step off at 11 AM sharp.
